Check the Chip Day

As much as everyone loves a bag of chips these chips are the microchip sort, specifically those implanted in your dogs and cats.  The initiative was started by the American Veterinary Medical Association and acts as a reminder to keep your details current on the pet ID databases and to ask your vet at your pet's next check up to scan the chip to ensure it's functioning and easy to find.
Should the worst happen and your dog (or cat) disappear a functioning microchip and up to date details can help in reuniting you - even after six years as this story from last month proves: A family have been reunited with their pet dog - six years after she was suspected to have been stolen.
